“Very interesting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2014

It's amazing to see how much of the Mulberry B temporary harbour is still in place. You get a better view of it at low tide and if you go up the hill up rue Lucien Joly - that enables you to appreciate the scale of the harbour.

“Interesting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2014

How'd I not know about this before? This is a fascinating stop to learn more about how detailed the Battle of Normandy was. I suggest doing a bit of homework prior to fully understand. I had not heard of this before so I read up on it afterwards. I should've done that prior to fully understand.

“Stays in the memory”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2014

I found this quite a sight and very moving. To think of what happened here, and how much we have to be grateful for in Europe now. With visits to museums and then the war graves it left me in a reflective mood.

“High tide view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2014

The tide was almost fully in when we visited Arromanches to view the remains of the Mulberry harbour. A few pieces could still be viewed close in but the majority was out about 500 metres from the sea wall. Detailed information is available along the sea wall giving descriptions in text and diagrams how the Allies constructed and used the Mulberry harbour to full advantage during the liberation of France.
Overall an enjoyable and interesting visit.
